Zingy courgette and pea soup

This is a super zingy summer soup using courgettes and peas so it’s super healthy as well as tasty and so easy to make!

Serves
4

Cooking Time
30 mins

Ingredients
4 courgettes
250g frozen peas
150ml half fat creme fraiche
Juice of half a lime
1 finger chilli
3 cloves of garlic
750ml of chicken or vegetable stock
Splash of olive oil
Salt to season

First heat the oven to 180 c and get a roasting tin/sheet ready.  Chop the courgettes into 2cm discs and add to the tin along with the chilli halved lengthways and the whole garlic still in its skin.

Add a good splash of olive oil to coat everything and a generous pinch of sea salt (about a tsp).

Roast the vegetables in the oven for about half an hour; halfway through move the mixture around so you get a colour on all the veg; they should be golden brown and cooked soft rather than brown!

If you have a blender the next bit is easy.  Simply add the courgette and chilli to the blender, squeeze out the garlic and add the garlic minus the skin; add the lime juice, a stock cube, hot water and creme fraiche and blitz to a  a smooth consistency.

If you don’t have a blender then do this in a pan and use a stick blender to  make the soup smooth and silky
